I won a race earlier this year on my 26" MTB, while everyone else was on larger wheeled bikes and looking down at me for having an older looking bike, it was all about the preparation and choosing the right equipment for the job, and also having it tuned for my weight and skill level which made it super nimble on the tight track.
